Mama’s Favorite Baked Beans

1 lb northern white beans, cooked and drained

1 c onion, sauteed

2 T grey poupon mustard

2 T worcestershire

1/2 c ketchup

1/3 cup brown sugar  (might need more depending on sugar in ketchup)

1  t garlic powder


Combine beans and onion.  Mix rest of ingredients to make sauce.  Mix into beans.  Ham or bacon can be added. 

Bake in  uncovered, buttered dish at 350 for 1 hour or longer, til thickened. 

This dish seems to taste better after sitting for several hours or overnight.

*my mother who is a diabetic likes these because they didnt make her blood sugar go up.
